Description Contents
 
Buddhism is historically one of the most important religions because of its tremendous movement that the world ever saw; the most gigantic spiritual wave ever burst upon human society. There is no civilization on which its effect has not been felt in some way or other. The gift of Buddhism is the gift of religion and philosophy and wisdom and spirituality. Buddhism served as a significant force in binding together culturally the country of its birth, India, and the nations that adopted it. The spread of Buddhist culture across the span of Asia is fascinating. Since the original texts in Indian languages were lost in India after Buddhism's thirteenth century decline, the Tripitaka translation in the Mahayana Buddhist cultures transmits a much broader range of Indic Buddhist materials than in the Teravada-buddhist cultures. As a true philosophical tradition, with its quest for pure knowledge, each regional network of Buddhist learning in Asia added its own texts and commentaries while integrating cultural practice into the complex Buddhist Sutras, Tantras and their extensive commentaries, were translated from Sanskrit, and by the grand revision which took place in Tibet, they became a literature sui generis. The became transcreations with the charm of the originals as well as the depth and precision of thought which led to ever renewing energetic expressions by the Tibetan masters.
